‚ąö CHECK. WE DID THIS! SB3012 ensures legal counsel to minors interrogated in custody
SB3012 provides an important safeguard for¬†minors, who we have the duty to protect.¬†SB3012 provides¬†that a statement made by a minor who is¬†interrogated in custody is presumed to be inadmissible as evidence in court unless the minor has¬†access to a lawyer throughout the entire interrogation. This common sense bill¬†ensures that minors will be provided with lawyers at the most crucial times. Follow these easy steps to submit a witness slip as a¬†proponent¬†of SB3012¬†by 8:30 a.m. Thursday March 20:
